In closing multiple raceway slots parlours and planning to step away from the economic machine which is the slots-at-racetracks program, the Provincial Liberal Government has essentially taken the stance that employing 60000 Ontarians, raking in more than $1.36-billion in direct annual revenue, and creating $2-billion in annual economic impact for the province is not worth trumpeting, let alone saving.

-JackyMartin AA 2011.mov [04:51]
A national fundraiser for seriously injured jockey Jacky Martin will be held at racetracks across the country on Saturday, October 8th. On that day, thoroughbred and quarter horse jockeys are being asked to contribute a losing mount fee to help with costs associated with the long-term care for the champion quarter horse jockey who was paralyzed after a spill at Ruidoso Downs. Funds for Martin's long-term care will be partially served by the Ruidoso Downs Racetrack Chaplaincy benevolence fund, which has a longstanding mission of helping people in need, such as Martin. Contributions to the benevolence fund can be made by writing a check to the Ruidoso Downs Racetrack Chaplaincy and indicate on the memo line it should be for the benevolence fund. Checks then should be sent to Ruidoso Downs Racetrack Chaplaincy, Ruidoso Downs, PO Box 449, Ruidoso Downs, New Mexico 88346. Never viewed before Jacky Martin interview taped just hours before his accident at Ruidoso Downs with Tom Dawson for SureBet Racing News.
